G.729 & Windows Media Player

When using Unity in G.729 mode, is it possible to achieve some sort of Windows Media Player interoperability through the use of transcoding to G.711 on Unity?<br><br>


Re: G.729 & Windows Media Player

Not sure I'm getting what you want to do here... if we're set to record messages in G729a, that's how they're going to get stuffed into the message store... so if you're sending a message to an external user that doesn't have VMO installed they wont be able to play the message using the media player in Windows.

unless I'm not getting what you're wanting to do?

Re: G.729 & Windows Media Player

I understand that WMP doeesn't support a G.729 codec, so it can't play messages retrieved from a G.729 Unity message store. In re-reading my original question, I can see that I was coming at it from the wrong angle, expecting Unity to transcode from G.729 to G.711, as for a TUI session. I suppose that what I'm really trying to understand is what, if any, non-Outlook/VMO clients can access and play G.729 Unity messages from a user's PC? And additionally, is there any online documentation that addresses these issues for Unity 2.45 and above?
